This is the first collection of the stories of John Auerbach to appear in English, the language in which these were written. Many of these stories were originally published in magazines including Commentary, Bostonia, the PEN magazine, News from the Republic of Letters, The Boston Globe Magazine and others.
The stories draw upon the themes running through Auerbach's life: his years on the sea, on a kibbutz in Israel, an alienated man in America, his survival and the survival of others from the horrors of war and Holocaust. The Owl is a remarkable vignette, a special story. When it won the first PEN/UNESCO prize in 1993, awarded on the basis of content and the power of communication, he was unknown, and still today, outside a small circle, he remains so. The Owl and Other Stories makes available for the first time the remarkable writings of this especially literate and insightful observer.
